    And why?

    I love the q-views on here, they're part of what makes this site awesome! I also love the discussion of why things do or don't go well, problems, issues and eventual triumphs that are all part of this hobby (obsession) we all hold so dear.

    So, in the interest of bragging rights, let's post up some of our absolute triumphs. Those meals that will, for whatever reason, be ingrained in our memory for eternity as some of the best.

    For me, there are a few. Not that the food was all perfect, but in most cases the combination of the food, company and atmosphere just made the meal amazing.

    #1: Thanksgiving 2012. Everything just came together perfectly without a hitch. The turkey was to die for, the weather was perfect and the company consisted of people who mean the most in the world to me.

    Best turkey I've ever eaten.

    Next I'd have to say was this pastrami. It was just off the charts good. 

    And finally there have been a few meals on camping trips that were just awesome.

    The view from our campsite in Rodanthe, NC (a lot of "enhancement" but this is an actual photo I took while sitting at the picnic table in our site)

    Some ribs

    Some more ribs

    And yet more ribs. These were the first ones where I "nailed it" in that they were in my opinion pretty much perfection, and better than any I'd ever had in a restaurant.

    My first ABT's

    And what started it all. My first "smoker". The resulting meal was edible, if only just, but it made it clear that I was going to need a real smoker and a lot of practice.

    So what are yours? Post 'em up!! I'm sure, like mine here, they've probably already been posted but this is all about the best of the best. so let's see 'em!!!

    Okay I am in!  I agree mine is the pastrami!  I am sooooo hooked on these...have several to do again soon.

    Got the recipe from Roadkill Cafe

    These are just soooo easy and taste sooo great!

    Roller's Amish the bomb!  Will always make these!

    Pops Breakfast sausages!  Very easy...and I also will always have these around.

    These are my fav's that I have learned how to do here on SMF!  SMF rocks and I have learned how to even surprise myself with cooking/smoking things.
